Jessica Mbalu Kissing in Parliament incidence
In November 2013, Jessica Mbalu notified the Speaker about the mix-up in cardinal directions, and insisted that the House records be corrected to show that the kissing reference had to do with her colleague from Kibwezi West, Dr Patrick Musimba. “It is possible that you were referring to my colleague from neighbouring constituency who was receiving congratulatory messages from his colleagues in the House following his successful re-election through a by-election,” Mbalu said.
Mbalu lamented that the reference to her constituency in the same line with kissing was “causing anxiety, excitement and concern” among her constituents. The MP, who sits in the Speakers’ Panel and moderates debate on behalf of the Speaker, pleaded with Muturi to effect the correction to the official records of the House to make sure that they show she was not anywhere near where the alleged kissing was taking place.
“I know that your intention was in good faith and was meant to enforce Standing Order 104 which prohibits members from crossing from one place to another and maintain decorum at all time,” Mbalu told Muturi.
Jessica Mbalu sought correction to the records of the House, perhaps, aware of the political damage such comments could have on the campaign trail, if they stay in the records of the House.
Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa had hugged Kibwezi west MP Patrick Musimba to congratulate him for his reelection.
The Hansard was corrected thereafter to remove the reference of Kibwezi Est MP in the incidence.
